It’s quite a big Halloween Patch with dozens of Halloween items and gear being added to Black Lion Chests, Halloween costumes and minis now available at the Gem store, including totally awesome and free Devil Horns town clothes hat.
Costume Brawl is now also live and amusing Tyrians to no end. This spontaneous battle involves using skills accessed through wearing town clothes, equipping toys or using transformation tonics. Remember to rack up the achievements by accumulating enough Costume Brawl points before the event ends.
On the non-event side, we also got a lot of nifty changes and additions.
Dungeons now award karma on completion. (Hooray!) ArenaNet said that the first-time karma reward for completing the story of a dungeon is larger than subsequent story runs. The first time per day a player completes an explorable path for a dungeon, the karma reward equals (Player Level) * 23.5. For the rest of the day, subsequent runs of the same path will reward karma equal to (Player Level) * 9.5. This should provide a nice boost to Legendary weapon chasers.
There are 19 new exploration achievements and an entirely new dedicated achievement category for jumping puzzles, which should thrill fans of both activities. More than 30 new dynamic events have also be put into the game. PvP fans though would have to wait longer for paid tournaments, which did not make it in this patch.
